Board log is made available and stickied at top.

The board reaches 8,800 posts by the end of the year.

Flags disabled

750,000 posts by the end of the year

/christ/ has become notorious for gnostic posters

/christianity/ revived

>2019 (present)

/christian/ is plagued with heavy handed mods who issue flippant permabans

the issue may be exacerbated because of the sharp rise in popularity of VPNs

board enjoys top 10 traffic among all 8chan boards

owner and volunteers see the discord as a preferred tool to congratulate themselves on how catholic they are, board is ancillary

log is sealed tightly

/christ/ is a dead board on life support

the only posts are ctrl+c ctrl+v "saint of the day" threads, and posts complaining about the "saint of the day" threads

/christianity/ is a moderately slow board, 2600 posts in a few months putting it top 40 at this time

no censorship

public log

protestant bent as it serves as a sanctuary from catholic /christian/, but not to the level of a "hugbox" or "echo chamber"

Those will end after Easter, leaving /christ/ pretty much dead. As far as I can tell, the only censorship on /christ/ is concerning racism (board rule 5).

/christ/ also hosts a page for Psalms

https://8ch.net/christ/psalms.html

That's pretty nice of them.

AFAIK, the current BO of /christ/ is a Free Methodist (Login name "LoveJesus" according to the log) that kicked off the Gnostics and Deists - even removing the flags - and rebranded the board as a Church.

You want to know what's funny? I'm the infamous "1c98e6" from the meta thread, who is supposed to be some massive "mod apologist", but even I'm permabanned. I appealed, but was rejected and I'm banned from the Discord, so I can't have that ban lifted until the natural lift at 60 days by the site itself.

On a long enough timeline, literally everyone will be permabanned from /christian/.

They, and the majority of /christian/ in general, strike me more as SSPX types. If you're unaware, SSPX are to Catholicism what what Anderson and Jack Chic are to Protestantism. They look at Protestants the way the Bantu people look at White South Africans. Take a look at this thread for example >>>/christian/793827 They are seriously lamenting Gustavus Adolphus' prevention of a Protestant genocide in Germany.

Just look at that first post and the sharp contrast with the current moderation. Yet tutor and his lackeys continue to claim to be oldfags while probably not even knowing who Alex was.

I started using /christian/ in early 2016, and before I give my testimony off the top of my head, you should avail yourself of the invaluable historical record that is the /christ/ meta thread. /christ/ was always the alternative to /christian/ and consequently the place to bitch about /christian/. You can still see the old posts going all the way back to before I showed up in that thread.

Anyways, when I arrived there was an announcement on the board, dated to either 2014 or 2015 (I forget which) that declared that flags were going to be off for a week or so to check things out (or something). This was the last Alex would be heard from until 2016. Until that time, while /christian/ lacked a BO, it was still being moderated and effectively run by an individual most commonly known as cuckvol. You can see his last known posts on 8chan in the /christ/ meta thread, mostly made shortly after Peter ousted the board from him, but I think there some from before then too. He should be the one with the SSPX flag. Under his watch, /christian/ remained a stalwart of imageboard culture, one could call someone a niggerfaggot without fear of being banned for mean words. At some point before I showed up, he banned a Seventh Day Adventist for "judaizing", this is the first known instance of somebody being banned for their beliefs, and censorship escalated from there. The early high profile censorships would make up the founding core of /christ/ for years. At the time, people felt cuckvol was a tyrant that just banned anything Protestant. We had no idea how good we had it. Despite aggressively combating Romanism, I only received one ban under him, and it only lasted anywhere from a day to a week. A few months after my arrival there was a new announcement on the board announcing the return of Alex. Ironically, this was the last we ever heard of him. Then, a few months later, the board suddenly had a new owner. Peter announced his arrival with a sticky, and his claiming of the board was strange to say the least (at the time 8chan automatically posted a stickie on a board with an absentee owner announcing the board was available to be claimed, this thread never posted on /christian/). Cuckvol was as sidelined as the rest of us, he immediately showed confusion and protest at his arrival. I think he suspected site administration of being involved. Instead of answer cuckvol's questions, Peter chose to remove him as a vol and permaban him after a short back and forth. This was the beginning of the end, and under Peter I would receive my first /christian/ permaban for criticizing Rome. The board's current problem started with Peter, and everyone since has just been the same thing but increasingly worse. There's alot more history to the board than moderation (like when we first found the Anderson "bible is God" video, damn that thread was fun, as were the other early Andersonite vs. Romanist threads) but that's what sticks out most, of course.

I've been using /christian/ since 2015 and i remember cuckvol being a thing. Just can't pinpoint when exactly.

Basically the catholic mods got insane and started banning any posts by protestants regardless of content. Lasted about a month i think


b29d1c  No.3181

Also I think chans in general are just slowing down. And most of the users just post on discord these days. People join the large christian servers, make friends, and form their own smaller servers with them and so on.

Was Peter the one that first got rid of the flags? I remember one day a new guy took over the board and got rid of the flags, then like a week later Codemonkey gave the board back to whoever had it before.


d73fd5  No.3193

I'm not sure if anyone even knows who I am (not that it matters) because I only posted occasionally, but I was a Korean who often replied to people asking about Korean Christianity and other related subjects. I do remember cuckvol and remember Alex as being an absentee mod… and the flags being available at some point, and at one point it was removed for a while until it came back. I noticed something very strange along the years that there was a huge Catholic bias that seemed to have been growing, even on their Discord server where I looked at. I definitely did not feel like I belonged there and after at least a year hiatus from this boards, I return to see the blatant Catholic bias even more apparent, with no one doing anything about it, people saying "all Protestants should be dead" or something (I'll try finding the thread later), with the guy saying "I'm glad the BO is on our side". I thought such incendiary comments would be more banworthy than the things I've come across here, so I was surprised, to say the very least.

Scrolled down the board catalog and noticed it broke the top 50 mark. One more UID onto the list, so it'll probably tick up just a bit higher. It seems nice here; I sort of stopped using /christian/ for much of anything other than maybe the prayer thread; perhaps it was the fault of some odious spirit hanging over the place, but I've never been a good judge of such matters.

At the time of writing this, /christian/ is at #11 on the public boards list, which currently doesn't include at least one very popular board. That's a lot less popular than /christian/ used to be. The censorship policy is having its bite.

So /christian/ is now an anti-Christian board?


aa5159  No.3774

Not necessarily.

What /christian/ is however is hypocritical, as both this thread and the /christian/ bans thread show there really isn't much 'Christian Discussion' going on over there, just Catholics going on about 'those damn heretics', which would be perfectly fine if you could actually debate them but the Papist mods will delete any post or thread that actually rebuke Catholic claims or teachings.

Old /christian/ has so much effort posting, those "Christianity vs x" threads were so informative, now it's just r/Christianity.

One area i kind of agree and disagree is the removal of esoteric topics, on one hand it's important to have an opposing voice so the board doesn't become an echo chamber, on the other many esoteric topics just kept beating dead horses.
